Hm. From your description it's unclear what exactly are you
after. A couple of questions to try to zoom into that:

 - You want to change the text in the curly braces, i.e. what
   you call 'foo' above? Is this text always different? Is it
   possible to state a rule describing how this text looks like
   and by what you want to replace it? Or is the process going
   to be manual?
 - All that stuff: is it in one file or scattered across multiple

I'm sure there are a couple of other questions I just forget now,
But we'll get there :)
